I noticed a minor issue - or does this affect the epic and legendary badge calculation?

I just open the reputation audit page here on meta and noticed:

rep cap was reached via rep from upvotes *only* on 26 days
earned at least 200 reputation on 23 days

That is impossible. My rep was capped on 26 days but I reached 200 on only 23 days? It would make sense the other way around.

    Rep cap does not include the giving of bounties; however, the second part might. Could that be the case here?

  • Also rep-cap ignores un-accepted answers and loss of reputation due to deletions, as far as I understand.

    @Josh nope: Neither calculation includes bounties Nov 19, 2013 at 14:17
  • Probably some combination of deleted posts/deleted users/serial vote reversal. If you had a stalker for a little while serial vote reversal is probably a likely bet, having done no actual research in your rep history.

  • @Servy: I don't think I ever got serial voted on meta.

My rep was capped on 26 days but I reached 200 on only 23 days?

I manually went through all of your reputation and this seems to be the case.

Prior to Nov 19, you hit the rep cap (from upvotes only) exactly 26 times.

However, there are 3 instances where you didn't gain a net of 200. This explains the 23 days..


I don't know if this is a bug or not. Nonetheless, I thought this was worth pointing out..

  • On July 12, is that not 195 rep from upvotes, not 200 (and therefore not hitting the rep cap)? I think Nov 26's the third one. Dec 7, 2013 at 6:51

    @Qantas94Heavy You're right - I posted the wrong date for that one. It was suppose to be Apr8.. Also, Nov26 wouldn't count since that was after Nov 19 - (the date this was originally posted) Thanks for pointing that out though! Dec 7, 2013 at 17:27
